If it’s one thing most of us have in common, it’s that we work hard for our money. I grew up with very little of it so my purchases are always calculated and very diligent. I think my husband would agree too that I’m not a frivolous spender and I’m always looking for a deal.
Today I want to chat about a classic fall fashion staple that really takes your outfit to the next level and I believe is worth the investment – the trench coat. I talk about trends quite a bit but when trying to build a solid wardrobe, it’s the classics that make all the difference.
The trench coat is a piece that adds class and sophistication to your casual or workwear look. I remember my closest used to be full of weekend wear and super trendy not-so-well-made tops and pants that when I tried to re-wear the following season, it was a bust. The item was either already torn or completely out of style. With the trench coat, you don’t have to worry about that.
You can opt for a classic black or cream color, but I love what the rust color brings to the table – especially for fall. If your outfit is head-to-toe neutrals, your coat will add a subtle pop of color that works for the season. The cut is gorgeous too. I’m 5’1 and wearing an XS. I didn’t feel like the fabric was too heavy or the silhouette swallowed my frame.
I would love to hear what your classic fall fashion staple is? What piece do you believe is worth the investment for fall? Let me know below!
Thanks for giving me some of your time and make sure to come back for a new post later this week!
